Gypsy Twittering Poll Overload

Twitterers claim victory over loaded Mail Poll.

This follows an article by Richard Littlejohn, 'Fast-tracking the Tarmacing community on the NHS', which criticises the new regulations on making sure travellers and gypsies get access to proper healthcare (see my earlier post). The paper ran a poll asking the public “Should the NHS allow gipsies to jump the queue?” A campaign by Twitterers overloaded the Mail's system with 'yes' votes.

I wonder how many of them are gypsies or travellers?
